They are hypodermic needles preloaded with a PDO absorbable suture.

PDO absorbable suture?

  • It’s a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. PDO sutures are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
  • Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months & won’t leave you with any scar tissue.
  • PDO Thread (foreign body) stimulates collagen synthesis & the skin structure creating a hold for another 12 to 15 months.

Purely injections.

No cuts or incisions.

The Threads are needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread which are inserted in the interstitial tissue at subdermal level, parallel to the surface of the skin. The threading needle is then pulled out, leaving the thread under the skin where they dissolve.

How does it work? It’s amazingly simple, actually!

Dissolvable PDO Threads

In medical terms “Selective Inflammatory Response”, or "Controlled Healing" is initiated. The skin is very good at repairing itself. The threads creates a healing response which generates new collagen naturally!
